As Alex, Cleo and Max discuss how to determine where next to find the Gorgos Stone, a dubious Asian visitor arrives insisting he help Max find it. As Max checks into the stranger's background, Cleo believes Mesoamerica holds promise, so Alex ventures into the legend of Quetzalcoatl and immediately finds himself the featured attraction at a human sacrifice. Quetzalcoatl intercedes just in time, and Alex finds in his savior an inspiring teacher, in turn quickly becoming his favorite and most responsive follower. Old ways die hard, however, and with drought affecting the area, Tezcatlipoca, wanting to usurp Quetzalcoatl, aims to resume the Toltec sacrifices - with Alex at the top of his hit list.

Did You Know?


Recurring features: Many entries in the series have frogs croaking in the background - the same frog croakings no matter what continent. Chickens also show up in backgrounds (here in Quetzalcoatl and in The Blessing, at least). The same oddly flat pumpkins in The Blessing (location: Africa) also appear here as well (location: Mexico) in a market scene. See more »


Tse Chung says that "part of the (Gorgos Stone's) greatest curse is the evil it inspires people to do to get their hands on it," yet none of the people trying to get their hands on the stone (Alex, Cleo, Max, Matt or even Tse himself) have ever shown evil in seeking it. There has never been evidence of this. See more »


Quetzalcoatl: When he comes to you and says "Die for the gods," you will know that I already died in your place. And let that be the end to the horror!
